Musicians from Stone Flowers will be accompanied by Manchester Camerata for a unique and unmissable performance. The performance is part of Music Action International’s Conflict & Compassion programme which explores the conflict of World War I from untold and overlooked perspectives outside of Europe.

Our themes have been interwoven into a compelling immersive performance for Refugee Week, to inspire audiences for a better, more peaceful future for us all. The performance will include newly written music interwoven with music by World War I composers (Elgar, Butterworth, Bax) and incredible live visuals. We’ll be transforming this iconic venue into an unmissable sensory experience.

Tickets are £12 full price and £10 for concessions. Refugees and asylum seekers, and those with a Monastery Community Card (M18 and M12 postcodes) are eligible for free tickets. Please click here for more information or for ticket bookings.
